Aurora pork heads for China

Новость на Казах-зерно:

Brazilian food company Aurora Alimentos (Coopercentral Aurora) has started exporting pork from Santa Catarina directly to China.

Some 120 tonnes of pork meat in five containers has made its way to the Shanghai and Yantian ports. Before this, Brazilian pork arrived in China via Hong Kong.

China started buying chicken meat directly from Brazilian producers in 2009.

In April last year the direct sale of pork was authorised after Aurora changed its systems and made it possible to track each animal’s details from its place of birth to slaughter following China’s requirements.

In November last year another Brazilian company Seara Alimentos, of the Marfrig Group, sent its first direct shipment of pork to China.
